Fruity Crumble Square
175g butter at room temperature
250g plain flour
2 tablespoons cornflour
75g caster sugar
100g dried fruit (mixed or apricot)
1 small dessert apple
Pre-heat oven at 180c/350f/ Gas Mark 4.
Cut the butter into pieces and put into a large bowl with the flour, cornflour and sugar.
Rub in the butter with your fingertips until mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Remove about half of the mixture and reserve for later.
Squeeze the rest of the mixture into the base of a baking tin with your knuckles.
Grate the apple (with the skin still on) over the mixture in the tin. Then cut the dried fruit into pieces and sprinkle on top of the apple. Finally sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes until the top is lightly browned. Leave to cool for 15 minutes then slice and leave to cool completely.Create printer friendly PDF
